Suit charges ex-cop forced man to perform sexual act

Christopher Hays, now in jail, sued by woman same day

On Wednesday, December 10, Trent Gene Veasey, Jr., charged in Superior Court that he was forced to perform oral copulation on former San Diego policeman Christopher Hays. The suit names Hays, former Police Chief William Lansdowne, the San Diego Police Department, and the City of San Diego. Also on December 10, an unnamed female (Jane Doe) filed suit against Hays, the police department, and the City, for squeezing and groping her, and making sexual remarks, during a pat-down procedure. According to local media, Hays pleaded guilty in August to false imprisonment and assault under color of authority. According to the Union-Tribune, Hays, who was sentenced to a year behind bars, has been in jail since October 3.

In his complaint, Veasey charges that on December 19 of last year, between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., he was walking near the 5000 block of El Cajon Boulevard when a police officer, "believed to be Christopher Hays," according to the complaint, gave Veasey a choice: he "was going to be charged with a crime or be allowed to leave without being arrested if he performed oral copulation on Officer Hays," according to the suit. "Out of fear, duress, and coercion," Veasey then performed the sex act, according to the suit.

On March 3 of this year, Veasey filed a complaint with the City for less than $10,000. In the complaint, he specified that the officer was Hays. On July 7, the City denied the claim, and said he had only 6 months to file a court action. Veasey is suing for negligence, sexual battery, and unlawful detention, among other things, and charging the City and police department with failure to screen and hire and failure to supervise and discipline. Veasey is asking for damages for services of hospitals, physicians, nurses and other professionals, loss of income, and attorney's fees.
